A source says that Cory's friends are organizing a private memorial service at his Los Angeles home, while Canadian fans are planning to hold candlelight vigils.
Cory Monteith's friends are reportedly organizing a private memorial service to remember the actor who passed away on July 13. The event will be held at the "Glee" actor's home in Los Angeles. "It's at his house. The invite was informal - just a Facebook message telling us to come to the house at night. Everyone is going to tell funny stories and bring photos," a source told In Touch magazine.
Meanwhile, Cory's fans are planning to organize similar event in Canada. The Province reported that the actor's fans would hold candle light vigils in Vancouver and Victoria on Friday to honor Cory. The Vancouver event will be held at 8 P.M. at Fairmont Pan Pacific hotel, where the actor died. The other event will take place at 9 P.M. at Clover Point Park.
A touching video message of Cory, that is believed to be his final video, appeared online on Thursday. According to Global News, the video was taken in a plane during a flight from Japan to Vancouver. A flight attendant called Sheila asked the 31-year-old actor to leave a message for her boyfriend's daughter, Mallory.
In the short clip, Cory recorded himself while sitting in the plane's cabin. The video shows him saying, "I wanted to record this video for you guys just to let you know to stay out of trouble and stay in school."
"Glee" co-star Dianna Agron called Cory "one of the most generous and kind people that I have ever met." Dianna added in a statement, "He had a smart, curious mind, he was an enormous talent. He was loving to not only me, but my family. My heart goes out to his family, to Lea Michele, to everyone that is struggling with the loss of our friend. We will miss you Cory. We will always carry a piece of you with us."
